A dental emergency refers to a situation involving teeth and surrounding tissues that is considered of high importance and needs the immediate attention of a professional dentist. Dental emergencies may not necessarily involve pain, although pain could be a major indication that something needs urgent attention. There are many situations that are considered as an emergency and each of them requires unique treatment depending on the extent of the problem. Prescott Family Dentistry in Fort Mill is equipped to handle all types of dental emergencies, always and at all times.

Some examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Toothache: An unbearable pain in your tooth needs immediate care from a dentist. It may be caused by a broken tooth, damaged tooth, an abscess, gum disease or a root canal infection.
  • Chipped or broken tooth: Broken teeth can almost always be saved. Call us and we will see you immediately. Small breaks can be treated with a filling. If the break is serious, you may need root canal treatment followed by placement of a protective crown.
  • Knocked out tooth: If your tooth gets knocked out, don’t try to handle it too much. Try putting it back into its socket and bite down lightly on a wet tea bag or moist gauze. Call our emergency dentistry service immediately.
  • Lost fillings and crowns: lost fillingsand crowns can be painful and may be caused by an accident or biting down on hard foods. The tooth needs a new filling or crown in such a case.
  • Accidents causing dental trauma: Accidents causing trauma to the face, teeth, gums or jaw need immediate attention. Contact our emergency dentist for quick attention and timely treatment.

Our Happy Customers

"I have nothing but fantastic things to say about this practice. The entire office is just phenomenal - everyone is warm, welcoming, personable, and very customer service oriented. They all remember you when you come in, they engage in friendly conversation and above all, strive to make you feel comfortable. Dr. Prescott is simply wonderful and there is nothing bad that I can say about my experiences with him. My husband and children are also patients, and although we relocated from Fort Mill,SC to Waxhaw, NC it is totally worth the drive to continue under Dr. Prescott's care. I've even referred several of my new neighbors to the practice... they all thought I was nuts to be referring them so far down the road. After their visits, they all raved about Dr. Prescott and his staff and thanked me for referring them. BTW - my kids are 14, 15 and almost 4. Dr. Prescott & team finds a way to connect with each of them despite the age differences. My youngest had his first cleaning here and can't wait to go back to the "mouth doctor"!!"
